  • Place the chickpeas in a pot with a bit of water (just enough to cover) and bring to a boil. Rinse and place again in a clean pot.
  • Add the onion, garlic, bay leaf, ¼ teaspoon salt and olive oil. Add enough water so that it covers the beans by about ¾ of an inch.
  • Simmer for about 2-3 hours until soft and mushy.
  • Serve with a drizzle of olive oil and plenty of lemon juice and freshly ground pepper.
